This is a Park with two distinct areas. We're unable to comment about in the area over the tracks near the office as we did not tour those campsites. Our review is focused on the pull through sites near the state highway before you cross over the railroad tracks. Generally speaking they are grass/gravel sites. The road is hard packed gravel. The area has excellent drainage given the one night we were there. There was a tremendous rainstorm overnight in in the morning generally speaking there was very little mud and it was no standing water. It would appear that rows A and B are more defined as pull through sites. Row C is a pull through, however, then you pull out into a large field that you have to make a giant turn in order to exit. If you were at the end campsite C-1, the area immediately adjacent to your site becomes a drive-through for people pulling out from the other end. There are no facility buildings in this area of the campground. There is a dumpster at the far end. Registration can be a bit tricky. We chose after making Google satellite analysis to stop before the tracks and have someone walk up to the office in order to check in. While there is a turnaround circle near the office, it probably wouldn't be the easiest of turn with a large motorhome and a toad or a large 5er. I have to tell you that the office complex is one of the nicest architecturally designed buildings in any campground leave seen . They've created the small lounge a laundry facility very large store reception area and is adjacent to their pool. The store was minimally stocked with emergency camping supplies that one might need .
The sites when we were there were family oriented and generally speaking it was quiet. at our site power plug was in poor condition. Sewer top was missing and the pipe was angled making connections challenging. They had their Halloween party weekend and they had a band in the pavilion which was a little loud for a few hours if you weren't participating, but it certainly was a festive place. We did not see any hooliganism. - wdw

We enjoyed the Columbus Day weekend with many seasonal folks and while there was some rain all members of the crowd enjoyed a costume party, crowd singing and a family-oriented meal with considerable attendance. - Birdieman

This is an older park but they are doing their best to make everyone's stay pleasant. We were in the front in the big rig area which is basically a big open field in site of the road. The sites that are more shaded are very tight and would be hard for a large camper to navigate.
There was not much road noise at night, though there is a train that comes through blowing its horn every weeknight about 3 a.m., so that can be a little hard on your sleeping!
But we enjoyed our stay. They have all kinds of things for kids to do on the weekends and we would stay here again. It is convenient to Watkins Glen and Corning. It is very dog friendly also. - mary mcmoo

Very comfortable once inside to your spot. There's a horseshoe club that meets there and the guys are really nice. The first row, which is all their seasonal folks and in the front of the park, kind of looks a little like skid row. Get past there and the place is fine. Conveniently located. - FloridaWanderers

After reading some of the reviews on this site I feel compelled to add my two cents.
My wife and I are full-timers, and we are still doing a substantial amount of moving about, so we see a pretty good number of campgrounds. What impresses me is not the physical attributes of a camp, or how near is the closest pub, or if the satellite dish will work. One of the things that does impress me is the thoughtfulness of the host: Camp Bell has that in spades!
They anticipated my needs and were prepared, they anticipated my wants and adjusted. They are all about customer service.
The camp was immaculate, and the seasonal trailers were very well-maintained, which can't be easy.
The store was nice, and was stocked with necessities as well as locally produced souvenirs. Prices for goods and services were very reasonable, and I have certainly paid much more this summer for the same service.
Having the owner come around to the camp to see if there was anything he or his wife could do, twice a day, told me that they are serious about providing a quality experience. Finest kind of people.
While we chose this camp randomly, you can be certain we will return if we find ourselves in the Finger Lakes Region again. - J M Rowe

The permanent people have the shade. The transients are in a big field with no shade. They do offer a package for the Corning Museum and the Rockwell museum. Corning is great, but we did not think that the Rockwell museum was worth going to. Spend your time at Corning. The bathrooms ate clean but outdated. The people at reception could have been a bit nicer. - har-fl

Nice place for an overnight stay. Very quiet. Dirt sites were fine during our stay, however could be a problem if it rained. Decent TV reception. No AT & T cell signal. Free wi-fi for 15 minute trial. Wi-fi for a fee after 15 minutes. We didn't need wi-fi so we didn't use it. - tomnorman457

We stopped for the night. We did not use any facilities. Dirt roads, just a park. Nothing fancy. 50 amp was good. Sewer hookup was good. Did not have to unhook in our pull through site. - xflyhighx

Has large, level, grassy sites. Great pool. Poor utilities and terribly slow WiFi (if at all). Good family campground with lots of kid's activities. Decent laundry with 4 machines. - dotr

Sites are very shady with most being located in the trees. Our site had the electric/water hookups on the top of a mound while the sewer was located close to the site. The patio/picnic table/fire ring was located up the side of a hill behind the site. There is a small swimming area in the park on the lake. Roads in the park are tight but manageable. At&T service was OK but we were unable to use our rooftop satellite dish because of the trees. One long hiking trails runs along the lake although its not very well maintained in parts of it. Not close to any grocery stores. We did not get on the lake but it looked very nice. - Co-Mike

The price listed includes a 50% Senior Pass discount. Tompkins is a beautiful campground located along Cowanesque Lake with fairly large sites that are nicely separated from the neighboring sites. Some areas have trees and bushes separating the sites for privacy, while others are in more open areas. The water, 20/30/50 amp electric, and sewer connections were well located on our back-in site (site #3) requiring a minimum of hoses and cord. Water pressure and voltage were both well within acceptable ranges. The sites have a paved RV driveway and a packed gravel area for the picnic table and fire pit. The boat launch and swimming areas are well laid out, and easily accessible. There's a 4 mile long maintained hiking trail with some good views of the lake and benches for resting along the way. The only downside we found that keeps this location from getting a 10 rating is the poor to non-existent cell signal for all carriers. That's not the campground's fault of course, but something to be aware of. We would definitely camp here again. - NYDutch

This is a great campground! Sites are very well laid out, with only a couple of exceptions in the Knoll loop. I had a site overlooking the lake this trip and it was really nice. Quiet campers all around, although as it was early June and the park was not full. The only thing detracting from the campground is the road noise from the road on the other side of the lake. It's not a problem at night though. That's the only reason I don't give it a 10. - Pickycamper

This KOA is just outside of the "main" area at Watkins Glen, on the way to Corning, NY. It's clean, friendly and has a nice pool area and outdoor play area (zip line-$, water slide-$, playground, pond, bounce pad, etc.). The sites were close together, but gave enough room to move around. One thing that was a bit off was the fire ring location. With the prevailing wind and proximity of neighbors, it seemed the smoke from the fire was basically going right into their air intake. Maybe that was just me. - lyagooshka

We took our grandchildren and daughters camping here and had plenty to keep all the kids busy. Normally most campgrounds have one jumping pillow but this one had TWO. The campsite was a very easy pull through and took no time to set up. We will be re-visiting. - dmlord

Our rate reflected a basic full hook up site. Geography at campground is mostly level and very lightly wooded. This is a full resort campground with enough amenities to keep families at the campground if they were to choose to. Our off season WiFi worked well, 3g signal on our Verizon cell phone. Professional and friendly staff. Expect noise from the local race track during day time hours. Also expect daily and sometimes nightly visits from the local freight train from across the street of the campground. Our site hookups were in good working order, noticed most power boxes seemed to be newer/updated. Most sites seemed relatively level. Interior roads & sites had crushed stone. Camp store seemed well stocked and was tastefully decorated. Bathrooms and showers were clean. Showers have plenty of hooks, space and a bench to put your stuff on. Noticed a multitude of site sizes and price ranges to accommodate the many different types of RV's. We enjoyed this campground and would certainly return or recommend this place to anyone. - mdcamping

We stayed at this park for a long weekend. Very kid friendly park with barrel train, bounce houses and crafts. The facility is very well maintained and staff is friendly and accommodating. One staff member even offered to pick up pizza for us in town. We had a nice large level lot but were unable to have 50 amp or sewer connection but offered on site pump out service for free. We also added cable option for $5 for entire stay which was reasonable. Excellent food in cafe and laundry also available. Nice hidden gem convenient to I-86. - Wiliard
Jul 2016 - $19.00
I am over ten yr user here, seldom moved to comment. But as others noted, stated ppa rate $17.50 by phone, quoted $19.00 on arrival, hard try to up charge to $21. Refused any but phone quote for w/30 E. So placed on unlevel, precarious, edge of a deep dry gulch with the deep water wellhead ON my postage stamp site. Low voltage, barely allowed by my EMS. Huge tree prevented full use of slide out. Only reasonable campground for many miles or I would have declined and would NOT return nor recommend. No OTA TV and to purchase cable requires fhu and the inflated rate it incurs. - Wicked Witch

We weren't informed that our space was water & electric only, and once we got setup tried to get TV no stations. Later we were out and found someone to talk to, they informed us that for $3 more we could get cable. That was not communicated to us. We weren't given a map of the grounds or informed where the showers or restrooms were. The showers, no hooks for your things in the shower, and the water temp is not adjustable. Not impressed, even though the grounds are well kept. - sambasstuff

We arrived without a reservation but they had a site available. The park ranger was helpful. The campsites are roomy but not private. We had to move after day 1 to a different non-reserved site. Some sites are laid out with difficult back-in access but no problems if nose first. Quiet. Very close to the town but still feels remote. Electric only. - rudyhehn

This state park is conveniently located near the village of Watkins Glen. We found the sites quite spacious although not terribly private. The bathrooms really needed cleaning. The area is beautiful, but this park would benefit with more maintenance (both daily and long-term). We camped in a loop without electricity. - MSSW

Memorial Day May 30, 2016 Site 99 Tuesday/Wed May 31 and June 1 Watkins Glen is located on Seneca Lake with the State Park right in town on the west side. Cute town and on the Finger Lakes Seneca Wine Trail. The international race way was just west of the park and you could hear them warming up on some mornings but it was not a problem. This campground was rated one of the top five in the Nation last year and I could see why. There are six camping loops with only one Mohawk Village having electric. Bath houses were clean and there were two showers in each one. There is a dump station, water fill, playgrounds, picnic tables, fire pits and trails from the Onondaga Village loop to the Gorge itself. If you are camping your pass is good for parking in town at the Gorge entrance and for the swimming pool within the campground which is huge. There is an Inn in the park as well. There are trails and they are very hilly. Pets are allowed in the camping loops (with proof of rabies) and on many trails but not on the Gorge Trail. The two trails on the rim are allowed for walking pets and there are two small bridges that connect to the Gorge Trail. We were in the electric loop and there were many huge sites which a large RV could fit. Our loop was very quiet during the day and most nights. Walking from the entrance to the loops is all up hill. The park itself is beautiful and everyone should see part of the Gorge. In the summer for a fee shuttles from the main entrance in the village will take you to the top so that you only have to walk down. There are many waterfalls (19-24) along the Gorge Trail. In the village there are shops, restaurants and a beautiful park for picnicking, parking, boating and there might be some swimming . Seneca Lake has a wine trail with about 19 wineries on the east side and over 29 on the west side. The Finger Lake region is beautiful with rolling hills and t. - gsnakehill

The camping area is fine, a basically open area with some trees. Site spacing is decent. Sites are level and easy to get into. Wifi when we were there was outstanding, with speeds from 5-20 Mbs, the highest we've ever experienced at a campground. . Staff was very friendly and helpful. The park location worked well for our explorations of the southern Finger Lakes region and we'd return if we came here again. - Annie and Beast
Jun 2016 - $46.00
Price reflects a two week stay. Asphalt/gravel interior roads. Grass/gravel sites. Have straight back-ins and straight pull-throughs. Has two speed bumps. Quiet park. Unfortunately allows campfires and unable to have windows open much due to them. Over 100 channels of cable TV with a guide channel. Internet was great when it worked, but was slow and limited a lot. Easy in and out with a 60 foot combo. - Tallboy

The campground itself is small and has few amenities but across the street is the park, wonderful for families with many options. A short jaunt on the crosswalk brings you to W.W. Clute Park which has a small beach with lifeguard stand, tons of playground equipment, a large pavilion perfect for a family reunion or club meetings, horseshoe pits, tons of shade, grills, picnic tables and benches with an outstanding view of Seneca Lake. The campground is also conveniently located adjacent to the Glen Harbor Marina and boat launch. Lots of fast food and full service restaurants, Walmart, and other shops are within a mile or two drive. The campground only has two showers but they are clean and equipped for wheelchair access. There are no laundry facilities but there is a laundromat nearby in town. The sites are gravel and fairly level. The WIFI is better than most and the cable brings in many stations. My AT&T service gets full bars here. Hurray! - Lucy's Friend

We arrived late for a quick overnight stop. Really enjoyed the remoteness of the Pine loop, there are some beautiful sites there if you can go without hookups. After a night of heavy rain your rig will need a good wash upon exiting - road from Pine to the main campground is unpaved. Would definitely stay again! - TCNG
Oct 2016 - $17.00
This is a beautiful campground. The sites are well spaced and well maintained. With the exception of Pine Loop, all sites have E/W. Most of the site #s below 100 also have sewer. The sites have a paved pad, a table, and a fire ring. Satellite reception is available but reco having a portable dish. ATT service is only "off-network" but Verizon is 2 bars. No wifi at all.
My biggest gripe is site specific reservations, we travel ad hoc so to stay for a week we've had to change sites 3 times. Reservations should only be amenities specific. You want E/W/S? Guaranteed but not the specific site. - HoliRambler1
Sep 2016 - $16.00
Interagency Senior Pass 50% discount for a 50 amp electric and water site. Site had a concrete pad that was slightly off side to side so we had to block tires on one side. There were a couple trees that had low hanging branches that rubbed the motorhome. We had good satellite reception, but the trees will interfere with many sites. We had good Verizon cell/MiFi reception. This is a quiet and pleasant Army Corps of Engineers park. We would stay here again. - Dave51

This park is one of the very best I have ever been to! The sites were level, the staff top notch, the amenities among the best available. If ever I am in this area of the Finger Lakes area of New York I will go out of my way to stay here. And oh, by the way, my two fur babies and their sister really enjoyed the dog park! - Hmuse

We stopped here for one night. They have nice, very long pull-thrus with full hookups. That was perfect as we didn't have to unhook from our travel trailer. They have different types of very long pull-thrus. They gave us one of the regular ones. I wish they offered us one of the big rig sites as those are a little larger and seemed altogether better sites. I think $55 was way too much for what we got. Maybe for families that will use the pools and participate in the activities, it would be worth it, but I doubt it. - Nathalie Bergeron
